Any Sister Wives fans out there? I am (raising my hand in shame). I know, Sister Wives is a true guilty-pleasure show, but for years I’ve followed the Brown family as it went from Kody, Meri, Christine, and Janelle to now adding Robyn. The family is full of kids, and full of drama. But one thing is sure: with that many kids, you have to have food — lots of it.
TLC, the company that produces Sister Wives, has a page full of Sister Wives recipes. I browsed for a bit, and thought it would be fun to try a few of the Sister Wives recipes.
Today, I bring you–
Here is the recipe (edited, because I have to say that many of the recipes on TLC’s website seem to be missing a thing or two):
- 1 1/2 cup plus 1-1/2 Tablespoon flour, white or whole wheat (note that I substituted ground flax seed for the extra 1.5 T flour)
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened (I used 1/2 cup canola oil and 1/2 cup shredded zucchini)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 Tablespoon flour
- 2 Tablespoon melted butter
- 2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I skipped these as we don’t like walnuts)
Grease 8×8 pan and layer 1/2 batter, 1/2 topping, 1/2 batter, 1/2 topping. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.
The streusel cake was a hit and disappeared the same evening I baked it. I would recommend doubling the amount of topping — it could have used quite a bit more. It made a delicious dessert, and would be nice for breakfast as well.
